One&Only Hayman Island Launches Signature Spa, Wellness & Fitness Programs On The Great Barrier Reef


Newly Reopened Iconic Private Island Resort, the First Resort in Australia to

Feature Natural Amala Products

One&Only Hayman Island, the renovated private island resort on Australia's Great Barrier Reef, opened on July 1, 2014 with a brand-new One&Only Spa, featuring a range of signature spa and beauty treatments offering a distinct sense of place.

The One&Only Spa has been designed to instill a sense of tranquility, with natural stone, gentle lighting and warm wooden floors throughout. It features 13 luxurious treatment suites, as well as relaxation lounges, sauna and steam rooms and Vichy showers.  Defining personal service and quiet indulgence, the One&Only Spa embraces its island setting and offers traditional and contemporary treatments inspired by the exotic marine environment of the Whitsundays, and customized to suit each guest's individual needs.  The philosophy of the One&Only Spa at Hayman Island is centered around three essential elements: "Rest" (designed for relaxation), "Rebalance" (for restoration and balance) and "Renew" (to uplift or revive). 

The "Ocean Dreaming" massage will be the ultimate One&Only Spa experience in the most beautiful of settings; guests indulge in a full-body massage while surrounded by gentle tides. The "Rainforest Massage" will allow guests to enjoy their massages while completely immersed in nature, surrounded by lush tropical gardens in the spa cabana beneath a rainforest canopy.   The spa also features a romantic couple's room, where couples can indulge together in the "Romance Retreat" - a body polish, healing clay mineral wrap and a hot stone massage for a shared experience to renew the spirit and reinvigorate the body. The One&Only Spa will also offer unique specialized treatments for men, young adults, and brides and grooms.

The One&Only Spa at Hayman Island will also introduce the all-natural Amala  spa products to Australia, a first for any spa on the continent.  A crafted collection comprised of rejuvenating, hydrating, purifying and detoxifying elements,  Amala products are powered by highly concentrated, intelligent blends of the world's most precious, nutrient-rich, organic botanical actives.   Founded by Ute Leube,  Amala spa and skincare lines are 100% natural in origin and work in total synergy with the body, optimizing the skin's ability to strengthen and repair itself.

A signature feature of One&Only Spas around the world is the Pedi:Mani:Cure Studio by the world-renowned Bastien Gonzalez.  Bastien Gonzalez has developed his method as a unique blend of medical-oriented care combined with a holistic approach to manicures and pedicures.  The resort will also be introducing the Luc. Espace Salon, a stylish hair and beauty salon with  Aveda hair products and Youngblood cosmetics.

For the active guest, One&Only Hayman Island also features a new state-of-the-art fitness center with separate areas for cardio, weight training and stretching.   And thanks to One&Only Hayman Island's partnership with international health and wellness expert James Duigan, the resort's in-house personal training team is fully qualified in the art and execution of "Bodyism," the signature program created by Duigan. Guests may choose a personalized workout program tailored to their specific needs, or choose from a range of exciting, challenging group fitness classes including "Bodyism," "Dynamic Pilates," yoga and "Beach Bootcamp."  And for guests who want to pair their fitness routine with a nutritional plan,  James Duigan's "Clean&Lean" well-being cuisine will also be available at One&Only Hayman Island.
